Making Embroidery Cool: Danielle Clough

Danielle Clough's embroidery art is both beautiful and striking. Her use of vintage rackets, tennis shoes and other unexpected objects is what first caught our eye. The juxtaposition between the muted vintage rackets and industrial iron mesh with the bright, painterly embroidery makes for a truly beautiful combination. Her use of colour and tone is also extremely well executed.

Clough was born and raised in South Africa, and her website describes her as a photographer-designer-j-embroiderer. (Google VJ - we had to...) Some of her most recent clients include Gucci, The African Innovation foundation and the United Nations. See more of her fabulously striking and original embroidery art here.
